This publication presents the methods and computer programs for developing timetables. Included are results of the calculation of optimum schedules for freight trains on double-track sections as well as suggestions for the solution on single-track segments, the rationalization of a local operating group during formation of the timetable, optimization of the work and rest periods of the locomotive crews, and utilization of computer programs for developing a schedule for operating and managing double-track lines. The book is intended for technical engineers, computer centers and technicans who develop automated control systems. Chapters: (1) General characteristics of the problem of schedule automation; (2) Computer modeling process for the schedule of a double-tracked line; (3) Algorithm for producing the timetable, including a "window"; (4) Some problems in using algorithms for calculating freight train timetables on single-track lines; (5) Automated calculation for staffing when developing schedules; (6) Optimization of the work and rest intervals of locomotive crews involved with scheduling in the timetables; (7) Timetables in an automated control system.
